Every month we try to bring you the top ten most popular travel money providers based upon how our site users behave and this time our figures are based upon 190,000 responses. As is always the case the popularity of providers does not strictly follow the order of best value for money as the really strong brands such as The Post Office, Marks & Spencer  and NatWest all featuring higher than their offered rates would suggest.

The five most popular currencies from the 78 currencies actively being compared during February 2012 were:

  • The Euro with 101,000 searches
  • US Dollars with 32,000 searches
  • Australian Dollars with 5,000 searches
  • Turkish Lira, 4,000 searches
  • Thai Baht, 2,000 searches

Well, that is what other people were doing on the site, what this doesn’t tell you is why they chose those different providers. If you are considering buying your currency online for the first time and are not sure why not have a look at some of the reviews other have left.

What other sort of feedback would you like us to publish?
